tmux shortcuts and cheatsheet

start new:

start new with session name:

tmux new -s myname

tmux a  #  (or at, or attach)
attach to named:

tmux a -t myname
list sessions:

tmux ls
kill session:

tmux kill-session -t myname
Kill all the tmux sessions:

tmux ls | grep : | cut -d. -f1 | awk '{print substr($1, 0, length($1)-1)}' | xargs kill
In tmux, hit the prefix ctrl+b (my modified prefix is ctrl+a) and then:

List all shortcuts
to see all the shortcuts keys in tmux simply use the bind-key ? in my case that would be CTRL-B ?
